C&SW AWARDS EVENING
Saturday 14th October 2017
The Awards Nomination for 2017 is now closed.
The judging panel have now examined the many nominations that entered the 2017 Care and Support West awards, and have created a finalists and winner list. The nominations varied immensely, there were simple nominations from service users who just want to say thank you, nominations from service users and relatives who want to say what a positive effect their carers made on their lives, nominations based on single instances of outstanding care and nominations based on continued help over time. What characterised them all was their heartfelt belief that their nominee is amazing and deserves recognition. Our task has been to assess the care given and the difference it’s made to service users’ and often colleagues’ lives.
The 60 finalists have been informed and the list of finalists can be downloaded here. Out of these the 22 winners have been selected, and will be announced at our awards ceremony on Saturday 14th October.
